Raw, vigorous, loud & unruly. Also brilliant. I've been lucky enough to run into quite a few good Cipster tapes recently & this is one of them.

Subject: Hot and nasty night of peak Pirate mayhem in North Beach!
Like "guitar slinger" I was extremely fortunate to attend tons of steamy Cipollina-driven shows in the 80s and the Pirates always held an extra special place in my heart. This one is a nice, fat, stinky show of the kind I remember loving so much. The energy was dirty and fierce as usual for this amazing band and John and Greg's snarling lick-trading and sizzling twin leads are like no other dueling slingers I've heard produce. (granted I come from a place of bias).
I would give this 5 stars except the vocals are not as strong as perhaps could be, but then Cipollina bands never were strong in that area so it doesn't bother me much. There are shows tho that perhaps have them miked a little better. Still, not alot circulating and this one is a tresure!! My deepest thanks to those who recorded and archived it for posterity!

Subject: Most Excellent
I had the fortune to attend live most of the Dinosaur, Problem Child, Zero, Thunder & Lightning, Terry & The Pirates, Fish&Chips shows around the Bay area in the 1980s.. I never thought I'd have the opportunity to revisit those shows. Venues like the Full Moon Saloon on Haight St, Grant Avenue Saloon, Chi Chi Club, Sweetwaters, O.T. Prices among others... really brings home the memories..

John Cipollina was a friend and he is greatly missed. His music lives on and will always be AWESOME!

This show is SMOKIN! Cipollina at his best, and dynamite sound quality (with a great small-room atmosphere) to boot! Great show, Mr. Miller, my heartfelt thanks to you for sharing such a this the only Pirates show on the archive?

You know, I'm too young to have seen John play live
(I turned 12 the year he died), so these great old tapes are the closest I'll ever get to hearing perhaps the single most mindblowing guitarist ever to ascend a stage perform his magic. Ever since first hearing that opening riff to Spin-Spin, I haven't been able to get enough.

I echo other reviewers I've read about how wonderful it is of the John Cipollina estate to authorize these tapes for trading, it's meant a lot to me to have the opportunity to hear John's music. He truly had a most diverse and interesting career and much of it is available here to turn on posthumous fans such as I. I know it's a dubious cliche that free downloads supposedly sell more official music, but in my case (and I suspect in MANY others), it's a literal truth; I'm currently buying up every official Cipollina recording I can lay hands on...I suggest you do the same...and while you think about it, DOWNLOAD THIS SHOW!!

Subject: another great one
I think it goes without saying now: Roger, you're the man! Out of everything you've uploaded, I don't think there's anything that's bad or even mediocre. And this one is one of the best so far. Great sound, wicked hot music, and a good time all around! Keep 'em coming!

On a lesser note, Terry introduces the three unknown songs... the first is something from the Wind Dancer album (I don't know which), and the others are "Commanche Boots" and "Nighthawkin' The Dawn" as far as I could tell. And everything rocks.
